Mbappe committed to a new three-year deal with PSG last weekend.
He told Marca: “I’m a bit sad because since I started playing football I showed everyone that I had the desire to play. I have always talked about football, titles, important matches, and never about money. People can talk about whatever they want, but everyone knows me.
“I have spoken to everyone at Real Madrid, I have spoken to PSG and they know that I have never spoken about money with the president, with Florentino Perez, nor with Nasser Al Khelaifi. My lawyer talked a little bit about money, as did my mother, but not me. I talk about sport because I talk on the pitch.
“My money goes into my account, I look at it a bit but I don’t care. I’m here to win titles, to show that I’m the best and to be happy. I think I’m happy right now.”
On criticism from Real Madrid striker Karim Benzema about him committing to PSG, Mbappe also said: “Yeah, yeah, and I saw several Real Madrid players posting things. These things happen, I have nothing to say. Of course, when I go to the France national team I will explain to Karim why I have stayed at PSG because we have a good relationship.”
